Aggie Village

Housing and Dining Services contracts with Parking and Transportation Services to only sell permits for the number of spaces available at Aggie Village ensuring parking is not over-sold. A waitlist has been set up for students that want to purchase a permit for the Aggie Village parking lot. Students are eligible to join the waitlist 30 days prior to the lease effective date and have an option to sign up for the T (Aggie Village Family parking lot) or U (Aggie Village parking lot) permit or both. Students adding their name to both waitlists should ensure that they assign priority to their preferred permit (U or T) because once you become eligible on the waitlist for your preferred permit, the system will send notification and remove you from your secondary preferred waitlist. If you aren’t eligible for your primary waitlist request, the system will go automatically to your secondary preference and send notification. Individuals on the waitlist will receive notification when the permit is available to purchase and have seven days (day one starts on the notification date) to purchase the permit. If after seven days the permit has not been purchased the permit will be made available to the next student on the waitlist, you will lose your place on the waitlist and be required to rejoin waitlist.

Aggie Village residents who currently have permits for spring term but are leaving for summer will have to reapply to seek a permit for fall. Having an existing permit does not assure getting another permit when there is a gap in residency.

Parking is enforced until 8 p.m. to ensure that residents are able to return to their apartment prior to 8 p.m. and have a parking space. Aggie Village (U) permit holders are permitted to park in the T or Research Blvd (#740) parking lots in the event that parking spaces are not available during non-enforcement hours. If residents identify a vehicle parked without a valid permit they can notify the RA for follow up with the driver of the vehicle in question.

Aggie Village Family and all other CSU apartment housing do not have waitlist for their parking areas.
